That's what I call it, John.I've always just called it "diamond and dot."
But maybe Roger can tell us the correct name if it has one.
Thank you Roger, good to know.That's what I call it, John.
This was a common pattern for the checkering on longrifles during their golden era. The dot was usually a sterling silver inlay. It was known by two names: checkered dot or diamond and dot.In architectural stonework, we call it a diaper pattern, but I've also heard it referred to as apron.
